500ml Bottle. Its aroma is of sweet fruits and floral notes. It pours a golden amber with a fast fading white head. Its taste is a lot blander than you would expect given the aroma. It fact theres very little there except water and a dry bitter finish. Not a lot to write home about on this one - drinkable but lacking in flavour and character.

TheCametron (1730) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle in South Shields. Pours clear Amber Broon with a White head. Caramel and alittle bit of hops. A fairly boring bitter. You couldn’t squint your eyes and call it an IPA. "A smooth and floral British classic" - LOL.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Stinckley Morrisons. Indian malt liquor aroma with matchbox and rubber. Martian bronze thinly streaked with head. Rubber and sulphur heavy flavour with a taint of cherry; some lemon cake crumbs and dough; distant sewerage.Tongue clinging paracetamol finish without hop.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottled 17/05/14. A dark gold coloured beer with hardly any head. Failry hoppy bit with an odd sweet note. Nice enough ESB type beer but fairly ordinary all told.

thanatosti (863) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2014
500 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Rick. Deep golden with a thin white head. Malty slightly hoppy nose but not so hoppy as to justify the name IPA. Taste is light as well as the mouthfeel. Quite a decent but forgettable beer.

ElectroMod (110) - - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons Connahs Quay. Pours a gold straw colour; a little light for an IPA I must say, with a thin and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is slightly floral hops, metallic and more like a lager. Taste is exactly like a lager. Suppose it’d be refreshing on a summer day (much like any lager I suppose) but misleading on the style. Disappointing and definitely not an IPA.

johndoughty (3844) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle.Another Morrisons special-using the word very lightly. Golden and looks the part but there is very little trace of hops and even less flavour. Jumped on the IPA band waggon and offers nothing. File under boring and bland.

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle - old gold colour with slim white head. Floral grassy hoppy aroma. Flavours are malty, not too hoppy, not very well balanced. Not really an IPA. Thinnish body, low carbonation, not much in the finish. Average sort of beer.

zacgillbanks (2088) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons, Byker. This is a bright golden beer with a citrus hop and malty flavour, peppery hop notes and a fruity dry finish.

rauchbier (3590) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle, from Morrisons, Scunthorpe. Deep gold, thin short lived white head and moderate condition. Pleasant fruity malt nose with a balanced hop resin note tinged with peppery spiciness. Full in the mouth with a restrained hop resin bitterness and a muted grainy maliness. Finish is hop bitter and slightly dry with a faintly herbal edge .
